a busy shopping mall and who is responsible. anne makovec reports from the bay fair center. >> reporter: good morning. this is a pretty busy place at 6:40 p.m. that's when those shots rang out. age old navy here, bed, bath & beyond so people are still interviewing witnesses and reviewing a lot of security footage. you can imagine there's plenty of that inside and outside of the bay fair mall as they try to figure out exactly what went on here. at one point, the bay fair mall was locked down. it looks like the shooting occurred between 2 groups on one side two men who were walking in the parking lot, on the other a group of people driving in a car. and police still trying to figure out their relationship. but they say this was not a random act. >> one of the things we will always look at in a case such as this where you have a shootout in the parking lot of a shopping mall is whether or not gangs are involved in this and right now we do not know that. >> reporter: now, right after this shooting, police got
6:01 am
reports that two men ran into the mall. they found those guys on the other side of the mall outside of the movie theater. those men were detained for questioning. and police have also been canvassing the local hospitals to see if any gunshot victims may have turned up there. right now it looks like nobody was actually hit by gunfire. they did find one vehicle, though, that had them. live in san francisco, anne makovec, kpix 5. we're following breaking news. a rescue mission after two marine corps helicopters collided near hawaii. six people were on board each chopper when they went down over oahu last night. the debris found was found, one empty liferaft and fire on the water. no word of any survivors. a man is under arrest for allegedly killing a woman at uc- san francisco's main campus. uc police say an altercation happened just before 5 p.m. yesterday on parnassus. the suspect and victim reportedly knew one another and the man was taken into custody

6:03 am
>> you know, i --i like chip kelly's concepts but i think he is kind of a tough fit for the nfl. people are still trying to figure him out. 49ers probably are in as much need as anybody else. >> reporter: but could kelly's hurry-up offense mean good things for 49ers quarterback colin kaepernick? >> chip kelly has coveted colin kaepernick since he joined the eagles a mobile quarterback that fits that bill. he can simplify the offense for him, boost kaepernick's confidence, ultimately all those things are why i think kaepernick will be under center when minicamp rolls around. >> gives kaepernick a better shot just from the style of play that kaepernick plays. kelly won't have control of the roster though like he did in philadelphia. that still rests in the hands of general manager trent baalke. kelly is expected to be officially introduced to the media sometime next week.

6:24 am
if it's about high-profile experience, reviving a franchise, chip kelly apparently is the head coach, best available. somebody's got to fill those seats. overhaul an offense that plummeted to 31st in the league. say what you want about the end of his three-year run in philadelphia, but kelly did run the fastest offense in the league with 10-6 his first two seasons before it went south. on the field and apparently with the media, as well. >> chip got arrogant at types and he is probably going to take a little bit of that edge off. >> i was being sarcastic. i thought that would go over big in this crowd. >> got to change some of his stubbornness because the media can destroy you if you don't win. chip is a guy that i think is smart enough to learn from all that. last night in front. a star-studded packed oracle arena, kobe bryant of the lakers bid the warriors and oracle adieu.
6:25 am
did you know he scored the most points against the warriors than any other team? there he is with his former teammate luke walton. bryant played 27 minutes. he scored 8 points. he has that injured achilles heel. the lakers were in striking distance until the warriors shook them off. don't see that every day. an "excuse me" dunk by steph curry. he scored 26. warriors won 116-98 but it was kobe bryant's night. he checked out for the final time at oracle after a 20-year career. that was the best of kobe bryant at oracle. people will be leaving with the image of number 24 for a long time. what a show. see you later, everybody. play of the day, we are going to take you back to the nba hardwood. we have cleveland at san antonio. an example of how a missed shot can become something pretty special. watch.

the freeways in san jose. northbound 101. another trouble spot traffic alert issued westbound 80 at maritime. the on-ramp completely shut down for a big rig that hit the guardrail. it's taking time to clear it out of lanes. it's also affecting the main lines of the freeway. we have delays at least to redwood at this point along the eastshore freeway. 17 miles per hour in some spots so very slow and go conditions as you work your way westbound. once you pass this accident it gets better towards the bay bridge. elsewhere, southbound 880 at 92 wreck in lanes. busy southbound out of hayward to 92s across the san mateo bridge metering lights are on at the bay bridge. thank you. republican front-runners are turning on each other less than three weeks before the iowa caucuses. seven men took part in a debate last night in south carolina. previously donald trump and senator ted cruz had been friendly during the primary season. but last night, each man questioned the other's status
6:36 am
as an american and eligibility to be president. cruz was born in canada to an american woman. and trump's mother was born in scotland. but he was born in the united states. with fewer candidates on stage last night they had more time to attack democrats. they took aim at hillary clinton but not really bernie sanders. kpix 5 political analyst melissa caen found that surprising. >> it was very interesting in light of the fact that bernie sanders seems to be doing well in these early stages in some of these polls doing as good as or better than hillary clinton. >> she also said in a debate it's easy to tell who the candidates think is winning. >> you can often tell who is winning or who everyone is afraid of by who everyone is talking about so when people are attacking donald trump you know he is doing well and tonight that person was ted cruz. >> but trump is still ahead nationally. this morning a new nbc/wall street journal survey shows trump with 33% support compared to cruz with just 20%. super bowl 50 fever is

6:38 am
home. >> reporter: some employees will telecommute or use flex hours. it will be challenging getting around downtown at best and slow. the main closures to remember include market street between beale and steuart street. southbound embarcadero from washington to don chee way. beale, main, spear, steuart street, from market to howard street. and howard street between 3rd and 4th street. but private events and changing schedules in security mean more closures. mta was still fielding requests as late as this morning's meeting. >> our main focus is to keep people moving. we'll have some disruption in the downtown area. and we are trying to work with the city residents and visitors to make sure they can get where they need to go. >> reporter: i talked to transportation officials. they said if you have one piece of advice to give folks for super bowl week what would it be? don't drive. they are asking everyone to take buses and trains instead. they are adding extra just for

that. in san francisco, emily turner, kpix 5. just about an hour ago we got the complete line-up of concerts for super bowl week. host committee ceo keith bruce talked about the big role music will play in that celebration. >> one nice thing is everyone in the entertainment business recognizes how big super bowl week is. you know? it's cross culture. it's about the game and it's about football and the nfl and american culture. but it's also about the entertainment and the halftime show and the music so we've found a lot of interested parties who want to play. >> that he did. here's a list of who you can see at the city stage inside super bowl city. at yosemite are getting name changes. it's all because of a bitter it's all free. >> that's great news. some of the most popular sights at yosemite are getting name changes because of a bitter battle involving the park's outgoing concessionaire dnc parks & resorts? >> the company filed after its contract was not renewed.
6:40 am
dnc says it owns the rights to the currents sight names and should be paid $51 million for them. so now yosemite has decided to change those names. among the changes, the ahwahnee will be the majestic yosemite motel and curry village will be called half dome village. no arrests after a train passenger was killed on bart. more on the growing concerns about bart safety. >> and the market just opened up about 10 minutes ago. another rough morning. look at that! dow down 364 points! coming up, we are going to get an update from kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks. ,, ,,
